8 Random Conversations over the past week or two...
So Wow....I am a bad bloggy buddy the past couple of weeks. I have been a little scattered in thoughts, busy out the wazoo (no that is not a word) and not stopping to blog.
Here are some random conversations I have had this past two weeks.
1. Location: Continental Airlines flight from Charlotte to Little Rock- via Houston.
Time: 7:00 Am
Passenger in seat 15 D is already drunk and I again remind you it is 7:00 AM.
Passenger to me: So do you want to talk?
Me: Nope- it's too early.
Passenger: Really? Cause I could buy you a drink.
Me: One- I am married- Two- I don't drink- Three you are already drunk
Passenger: I thought you had to buy water on planes now.
Me: Not on Continental you don't- that's why they are so full (sarcasm was lost on him)
Passenger: Is that really why? (believing me in his drunken stupor)
We take off- Passenger falls asleep, snoring loudly, mouth open, and bopping head
in my direction.
Me: Get up....walk up to flight attendant- Is there ANY other seat on this plane
that I can sit at? He is drunk, open mouth snoring and annoying.
Flight Attendant: Nope, please sit down we are heading to turbulence
Summary: Did he snore and bob his head the whole way? Yes...other than when his
friend paid the flight attendant to pour him a Rum and coke.
-Did I mention I did not like that flight attendant? Who continues to serve a
drunk man at 7:30 in the morning?
2. Conversation Location: Nickel's Home- my bedroom
Time of Day: Around 7:00 PM
Emma: Mom I was looking at some old pictures and you used to be really pretty Mom.
Emma: Yep- you even looked skinny, had white shiny teeth, and a flat stomach.
Me: Is that so?
Emma: Do you think we should tell Dad that you used to look good?
Me: Let's just make that our little secret.
3. Conversation Location: Nickel's Kitchen
Emma: Mom When is your anniversary?
Emma: What are you going to do?
Me: Go to a funeral.
Emma: Were you always this boring Mom- no offense or anything.
4. Conversation Location: Abundant Life Center Church
Circumstance surrounding conversation: We just ran 30 kids over from Kidzone to
church during thunderstorm- as in barrels of water from heaven.
Me to Penny C.: Um Penny my skirt is half off ( I was running to bathroom)
Penny: Laughing- Really?
I run to the bathroom as I try to pull it up. A little girl had pulled it off
while I was delivering her to her Mother.
Sight that was seen: Cylinda's bottom to back 1/2 of the church.
Feeling at that moment knowing I still had to praise sing: Not so priceless
5. Conversation Location: Harris Teeter Grocery Store
Section: Frozen Foods
Seanna: Mom we want Aplabet Tator Tots
Me: We don't eat Tator Tots.
Woman walking by to child (I kid you not) She is one of those.
Emma: If you buy those it will help me to learn how to read and I will pass 2nd
6. Conversation Location: Laundry Room
Date: Sunday Evening
Emma: Mom can I have a frozen dinner?
Me: No I am making dinner
Emma: Mom really don't feel like you need to it's raining outside and they taste
better than your food anyway.
Me: Wow- thanks
Emma: (gives me hugs) and says how about a kiss for Emma?
Me: Why don't you go kiss your frozen dinner box
7. Conversation Location: My home office
Emma: so I am writing this great story about a girl that gets bought at the
Kids for sale center.
Me: The orphanage?
Emma: yeah- how much should I say their price is for each kid?
Me: are they sassy or nice?
Emma: Mom- come on
Me: I think the price should be negotiable
Emma: I don't know how to spell that
8. Conversation Location: Food Lion
Section of Grocery Store: Produce
Worker at Food Lion: Ned
Me: Excuse me sir- do you have any more bananas in the back of the store you are
out of them.
Ned: No ma'am there is a major snow storm coming tonight- you can't expect
us to have bananas for everyone.
Me: Good to know!
I am sure there are others that will come to mind- but you know since this is my brain cleansing area- now I will have plenty of room to add other conversations to this blog later.
No children were harmed in the creating of this blog although the thought did cross my mind a time or two. Happy Monday.
